Overview

A short escape from more heavily used routes, Jim Creek Road will instill the solitude you are looking for in Wyoming’s Snowy Range. Evidence of a simpler life is found along Jim Creek Road and the surrounding Centennial Ridge. At the trailhead, two abandoned cabins from nearly a century ago remain to stir your imagination about the history of logging and mining in this part of the Medicine Bow National Forest. An industrial past has opened the door for a modern-day outdoor recreational epicenter. Keep a watchful eye as herds of elk and moose are common sights when taking this back-woods route.
